    I read an article that talked about Autistic kids being helped by using iPads and I thought this would be worth a try for my nephew. The article can be seen here:

    Mike,

    Check out the refurb deals that Apple has on the original model if you want to be cost conscious. Best of luck to you and your nephew.

    The prices on the first gen iPad are going down significantly when the gen 2 hits this Friday.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    I just sold a older iPad to the grandfather of a austic boy. He said they are using the heck out of it in classes, etc. Seems to be helping quite a bit.
    Best of luck Mike...

    Come on folks. This seems, to me at least a worthy cause.

    My sister worked with two autistic brothers of a family friend. I will be telling my sister about it. It's definitely a worthy cause.

    I'm so broke I can't pay attention, but I gave.

    C'mon everyone, a couple of bucks.
    He only has until april 12.
    If everyone gave a dollar,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,What a difference!!!

    Good luck Mike!

    Thanks oneshot! It is appreciated more than I can tell you. I have been a little disappointed in the response I have gotten with this. I had hoped to be able to buy the iPad by now and in fact I think I have only gotten about $55.

    I have posted it on my FaceBook page as well as several other gun forums I check from time to time. Seems very few people think this is a worthy cause. I will keep trying though. I'm not giving up.

    just put in 20.00. Damn wish I would have known sooner I could have helped with this. I'll see what I can do. Beside the site is there any more info I can give to people that want to potentially donate? I have the link to the FOX news story and the link to the site but I think if there were more of a response if you got at least some pictures up of your nephew and a bit more backstory. I will still post this on my Facebook and send to friends though with my own explanation. :)

    Come on folks! Let's kick this off right! Mike is a great contributor here, and is asking for a very worthwhile cause. Let's show some "Family" bonds!
